For Immediate Release:March

Chicago -- Following reports from whistleblowers that a whitetip shark died during the
production of a Kmart commercial, PETA has fired off a letter urging the chain
to investigate the incident immediately and to adopt a policy against using any
wild animals in its ads. The shark was flown to Los Angeles on March 6 and
placed in a small above-ground pool in Van Nuys, Calif. PETA was told that
actors jumped in and out of the pool with the shark, stressing the animal, who
died later that day. It was reported to PETA that the crew was upset by the
obviously distressed state of the shark, but only after approximately an hour
did the American Humane Association—which allegedly approved the script and was
on set—stop the shoot.
it appears that no one on set is protecting animals from exploitation,
suffering, and death, making it clear that the only sure way to prevent
real-life animal snuff movies is not to use animals in the first place,"
says PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange. "PETA is telling Kmart that
there's no excuse for risking animals' lives, especially when modern, creative
companies today are using CGI [computer-generated imagery] and animatronic
technology instead of captive wild animals."
